J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers, a division of Somerset Welding & Steel, announced the company is manufacturing 130 barrel (BBL) pressure vacuum tank trailers in addition to J&J’s 110 BBL mounted tanker. The J&J DynaHauler PVT 130 BBL tank trailer is engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of gas and oil field service work. From the full penetration submerged arc welds to the Cor-Ten suspension sub-frame, the J&J 130 BBL tank trailer is a sound investment for oil and gas field service operations in the Marcellus and Utica shale, and beyond, according to the manufacturer.
J&J customers working in oil and gas field service showed interest in a tanker option with increased hauling capacity and over-the-road capability.
“Our goal in this project was to market and produce a high-capacity, fifth wheel tank trailer that is among the best in the industry, with an emphasis on producing multiple-unit orders,” said Bill Riggs, president of Somerset Welding & Steel. “The demand is already high, so we’re optimizing our production schedules to meet customer needs.”
The first J&J tank trailers were delivered to Hill International Trucks LLC, a vocational truck dealer located in Eighty-Four, Pa. “J&J worked with Hill International to introduce the J&J DynaHauler PVT 130 BBL tank trailer, and our customers are pleased with the construction quality and workmanship,” said Kevin Donelli, general manager at Hill International.
The standard J&J tank trailer features include .25 in.
